More Carol Influence

Family Ties: A Keaton Christmas Carol

Alex Keaton is not in the Christmas spirit, forgetting to get gifts and even refusing to buy cough syrup for his sister Jennifer. During the night, Alex has a Scrooge-like encounter with the Ghosts of Christmas Past and Future (depicted by his sisters Jennifer and Mallory, respectively). After realizing where he's headed, Alex decides to make things right with his family.

The Dukes of Hazzard: The Great Santa Claus Chase

Boss Hogg tries once again to get those infernal Duke boys out of his hair (or lack thereof) by framing them with stealing a load of Christmas trees. However, they get ahead of him and manage to keep their names clear of this.

However, they decide to give Boss a wake up call by staging a visit from the Ghosts of Past, Present and Future for him. However, it goes wrong and they have to give it up. But then Roscoe gives Boss a copy of A Christmas Carol and Boss reads it, getting into the story. Realizing he's a lot like Scrooge, he brings gifts to the Duke farm and celebrates Christmas with them.
